Barbecued Chicken Quesadilla

6C1E74F7-8BF8-42B8-9835-CA85DF919E0BI had a leftover bbqed chicken leg and thigh in the fridge, so since my wife like quesadillas that seemed like a good idea for supper. This quesadilla I made a little different just for fun. With a quesadilla you can pretty much use what ever you like. Normally I wouldn’t use bbqed chicken but needed to use it up so in my mind it is always why not. I threw the cooking rule book out years ago. Just doing what I think could work when cooking is pure fun for me. Will admit that some times I have made a real stinker of a meal this way. Most of the time it has ended up with a very good meal. Some have been great meals and I make them often. A little experimentation with cooking is good for the mind and good for the soul. Quesadillas are simple and easy to make and if you use the plate method easy to flip. This turned out to be a great way to use up leftover bbqed chicken.

1 cup cooked bbqed chicken that is cut in a small dice

2 green onions chopped

1/2 a roma tomato seeded and cut in a small dice

1/4 cup of salsa

mix everything together in a bowl. This is enough to make 2 quesadillas

3 cups grated cheddar cheese

2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

mix the cheese together and separate into 4 equal piles

preheat a frying pan on medium heat. Place 1 large tortilla in the pan, spread 1 pile of cheese on it and spread around. Keep everything about 1 inch from the edges. Top the cheese with half the chicken mixture and spread around. Sprinkle another pile of cheese equally over the chicken and top with a tortilla and press down. Cook for about 3 minutes pressing down occasionally, check to see if it is brown enough. Flip the quesadilla over and cook for about 3 minutes. Remove and cut into wedges and serve.
